Inspiring or mimicking biological bodies is regarded as one of a breakthrough in the conventional engineering. The bird's motion is one of the mimicking objects. Seagulls fly under strong storm at sea. An attempt of investigating into the characteristics of a seagull model's motion and its flow fields has been made in this study. Three cameras, two for motion capture and one for flow field, were used. The motions of the seagull's wing have been reconstructed, and the flow characteristics around the wing have been investigated with 2D-PIV measurements.
